|Photo by Brooklyn YRs President Diana Sepulveda|
Someone's got some explaining to do.
This photo was taken by Brooklyn Young Republicans President Diana Sepulveda in the lobby of her building. What you're looking at is a bulletin board in the lobby of her building in Gravesend. Affixed to it is a Democratic Designating Petition for Mayoral candidate John Liu, Brooklyn Borough President candidate Eric Adams and City Council candidate Mark Treyger.
Alongside it is a note asking "Registered Democrats" to sign the petition in support of candidate Treyger. You can read the rest of the note for yourself.
For those who don't know Election Law, enrolled party members are supposed to witness the signature of other enrolled party members. In other words, any signatures submitted from these petitions, or others like these, would be done so fraudulently.
Since the culprit committing this fraud is unknown, this, in my opinion, calls into question all the signatures collected for these candidates. Is this an organized effort? A rogue petitioner? Who is to say? What would the opponents - Republican and Democrat alike - have to say about this?
And what do you think of this? Leave us a comment!
